Taxpayers have right to be mad

To the Editor:

My letter is in response to Shania Alexander’s letter. In her letter Ms. Alexander equates the treatment of Ms. Keys to a “lynching” or a “cross burning,” and in my opinion those remarks were racially motivated, untrue and demonstrated on outright sense of indecency. Ms. Keys has been shown an inordinate amount of kindness and compassion including all the gifts from the nurses and staff of the hospital as well as the American taxpayer.

I’m one of the people that is terribly upset with Ms. Keys’ decision and its consequences due to the terrible impact and misery it will have on her children.

Furthermore I would remind Ms. Alexander of an old saying “Love the sinner and hate the sin.” Nobody hates Ms. Keys, but as taxpayers we have a stake in her decision and a right to voice our displeasure.

Ms. Alexander talks about Jesus and his forgiveness and to that I would say Jesus really wants children to be born to married folks that can afford to raise them.
